Also, MS support handled the dead systems fine, the downtime was annoying enough to make me switch to PS3 though. The game lineup, and new Kinect are enough to bring me back to MS however. Sony can keep their army of indies that they're using to pad a lackluster
launch lineup, if you pull indies, cross platform and free to play from Sonys "massive" launch lineup all you're left with is Knack, Killzone, and Driveclub... But, I digress. Don't waste your money on extended warranties. In the highly unlikely event of another
mass scale failure I'm sure MS will extended the warranty themselves like they did with 360.
